  1. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  2. I've been having trouble printing 8 x A5 pages on both sides of 2 x A4 sheets. (A step-by-step guide would be useful) )I thought I had cracked it but the printout looks like this. Why the small font size? Any help would be appreciated.
  3. I watched an Affinity Designer tutorial instructing me to download fonts from the trusted site ‘dafont.com.’ The video had me get the FontManager app to download the fonts from dafont.com and this was working wonderfully until the latest iOS update (iOS 13.1.3). I need to download holiday fonts ASAP for work related designs so can anyone tell me another way to do this? Much appreciated! -Devin D
  4. Hi! I read the forums about the fonts from the summer of 2019. I just downloaded 32 fonts and it's only recognizing seven if that. Very disappointing because X9 can see all of them. (X9 the grandfather of affinity) My font folder says I have a total of 523 fonts, less than what the other users had. I was at the most current version and then I kicked back to version 1.6....and it's still not seeing them - very unhappy is there an extension that I can download to fix this problem. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello, I am having a problem when placing a pdf, originally created in Finale, into Affinity publisher. For notes with accidentals, the note-head and the accidental are overlapped and import as one character so I can not separate them. The first screen shot is the way it looks once imported, the 2nd is from the original pdf. I have found a word around by editing the document and manually replacing the characters using the maestro font, but it is extremely time consuming. I am new to Affinity, so all suggestions are welcome.
  6. Apologies if there is already an appropriate thread for this. When placing a pdf file, sometimes the font family and style get combined into the font name, which is then not recognised. For example, Family Calibri Style Bold comes in as Font Calibri,Bold which is then not recognised. I have seen this with pdfs created by both Word and Excel on a PC. Once the problem is recognised, the fix is simple - open the pdf, make the font substitution, save and place the file. But it would be better if this were not needed.
  7. 没有进入中国市场的官方想法吗? 所以我从来没有处理这个错误? 自初始的测试以来,这个问题已经得到反馈,但尚未解决...
  8. I want to make text that looks like it has been written with a gold. Can some one please tell me if and how I can achieve this? I've attached some examples.
  9. A big problem for me is the fact, that I cannot place PDFs in APub with embedded fonts that are not installed on my computer. Well, I can place them but they don’t look like they should, because the missing fonts were replaced! In a magazine I have to place a minimum of 70 ads that I get as PDFs from multiple customers. I only have to place them onto my pages within the editorial content. And they have to be ‚as they are‘ when it comes to printing. It’s not possible to tell all the customers: "Please give me all the fonts you have used"! So please make it possible to use PDFs the common way: Put a PDF on a layout as it is, whether the fonts used in it are installed or not. Kindest regards Udo
  10. Hi everyone! Will be support for variable fonts in the near future?
  11. This is more of a request for users of the Affinity suite to badger Extensis for them to start to think about producing an auto activation plugin for Suitcase for the fonts used in an existing document. I tweeted Extensis about this a couple of days ago and they said it would be something they would think about if there was enough interest in it, obviously they already do this for the CC suite, but as my company are slowly switching over to Affinity (already using Publisher extensively... working on the other two programs getting implemented as well), this would be a very welcome feature indeed. With over 2 million users of Affinity, it's certainly something that should be taken seriously at this point, so let's make them take notice!
  12. I’ve searched the forum but haven’t found a similar issue so here I go: I’m currently trying out Affinity Designer (Trial version 1.3.5) and the font list, while being in text mode (text tool selected), doesn’t show all my activated fonts; it shows like 51 of them but of my 2814 fonts I have 291 activated (managed with FontExplorer X). Also, it appears like the list isn’t automatically updated if a font is (de-)activated.
  13. Hello everyone. First I am sorry if this is duplicate or there is answer already (if there is I will be deeply obliged to anyone who can answer to me). Also may be I am incompetent - I do not want to say anything bad, and this may not be bug, but my fault (not knowing some setting for example). However - here is my problem. First the problems with the fonts - fonts are basically the main building block when you make any publication regardless of the type of it. My first and main problem now is that Cyrillic fonts are not properly recognized and give error message of "Unsupported characters used" unless the font is .OTF - so no post script for example. When we make publications, catalogs, magazines, whatever - there is variety of fonts that are used and if they have Cyrillic encoding recognized by the other programs, and in this case there is Cyrillic encoding and it is recognized in variety of programs, the client wants to use it. But the program does not. Also the program uses some other fonts that it uses to substitute - but I cannot see what is used neither where - at least I was not able to make it to highlight the missing and substituted fonts - just the exclamation marker on my Character panel if i go locate it manually and then in font manager - this error message. I tried to see what is going on and yes this is the same - regardless if I open document, PDF or I create brand new document with Publisher itself. It also does not recognize the fonts styles - here is an example what I mean: We bought PostSript 1 - the font have Cyrillic and Latin and it has 12 styles - From Light all the way to black. The font works when you use Latin but not the Cyrillic symbols. However - when you want to use it to substitute other font, the font manager always show you Light style - regardless that you may have chosen to use Black (it will draw it properly by the way, just you cannot see the choice you have made). This particular font is PostScript type 1 again, tried with multiple of those. However I am sure for Post Script 1 and do not know if it counts for other fonts also, but it makes your choices very restricted regardless of how many fonts you bought. If a font have Cyrillic and all other programs are seeing it, and can use it, I cannot say the client that he cannot use it just because my program does not support it. I hope this is all my fault but it looks like bug in the application for Mac. I am using and having this issue on mac OSX 10.11.6 in this case, currently searching for workaround, by the way. I bought the program for Windows also - and there is no problem with Post Script 1 type fonts on it. Also would like to ask what is the way to see what font have substituted the missing or "wrong" font and where -is there way to highlight it so it will be at a glance. Best Regards.
  14. I am using the script font "Hearth Stone" in the size 128 pt. On screen it looks like expected but when printed the font is cut off at the buttom. Even playing around with "Leading Override" has no effect. MS Windows 10, Affinity Publisher Font downloaded from: https://www.dafont.com/hearth-stone.font Printer: EPSON ET-16500) See example file.

  15. This font (EuroRoman Oblique) is not rendered correctly in Affinity Photo.
  16. I am a typedesigner and like to test my fonts in Affinity Publisher. Every time that I update the font I need to close Affinity Publisher and then the view of the font is in a kind of low resolution. When I make a new document the updated version of the font is right again, but I need my original testdocument to work in. What can I do to change that?
  17. I am just working on my first major publication with Affinity Publisher and it is a pleasure to work with. But, as I'm creating a tekst frame, my fonts (I'm working in Calibr 14pt, regular) turns really weird and instead of having the Calibri font (although my settings seem to be correct), I get a fat black tekst that can not even be read. It's surely a setting somewhere, but I'm lost. Thanks Patrick
  18. Hello friends, I imported psd file which contains webdesign and im trying to get specifications from it. I can see W/H of sections, used colours, but i cant see what font was used. It should be Open Sans... yes i had installed this font to Windows. Any suggestions ? Thanks
  19. Bonjour, Comment importer les polices de caractère d'un document INDD pour qu'elle s'affiche à l'ouverture dans Affinity? Merci
  20. When I open an Affinity Publisher document (originally created on a PC) on my mac, I get a pop-up dialogue box informing me that a font is missing. Using the Font Manager I can see the font that's missing (in a list). However, when I press 'locate' Publisher does nothing. In the list it suggests an alternative to substitute but, unless I'm missing something obvious, there's no way actually to substitute it. After saving and reloading, the same pop-up box appears telling me about the missing font. All thoughts/suggestions gratefully received. Edward
  21. HI All, I recently purchased all three programs and moved to Windows 10 OS. I have a new PC so I'm starting from scratch - installing fonts onto my system. I'm still using Adobe CS6 products while I transition to Affinity, I have a lot of print files (Magazines, Ads, Flyers etc.) which use specific fonts that I have to continue using so in order to move I have to be able to access the font files in Affinity. I have hundreds of fonts Truetype, Open Type and Postscript Type 1. The installed fonts all showed up in my Adobe Suite but not in Affinity? I use FontExpert to manage installs but I have also tried installing directly to Win10 fonts folder. The results are quite random. I get a different (Limited) selection of installed fonts each time I open a program - and never the full range of typeface options (Light, medium, regular, bold etc) Is there a setting I am missing to activate the installed fonts? Any solutions welcome? Thanks in advance
  22. Exported a document with text written using Roboto font to PDF in AD. But, it's appearing like this: The issue seems to be with the Thin variant only. Tried AP and there were no issues!
  23. I changed the font of some text fields in the master (the whole field, not inside the field). My document has already 16 pages, all referring to this master, but the copy text was already inserted. Now I changed the font in the master, and thought that the font change will affect all layout pages (at least those where I did not explicitly change the font within the text field). But this did not work. If I re-apply the master, all my copy text in the 16 pages is set back to the text of the master! Am I missing something?
  24. When using arial font in Japanese environment, there is a bug in the font character. There are many bugs. The character conversion of the blank space is different or the character itself is different. Since arial is a system standard font, it cannot be deleted, but it is a font that has problems in the Japanese environment. However, since the default font is arial and the alternative font is automatically converted to arial, there is a big problem other than the appearance of the design. Is it possible to have MSfont as the default font in Japanese environment or to select standard font in afinty designer? It ’s very… I ’m in trouble because I ’m in trouble Even if it is hidden on the windows system, arial can be selected on afinty ...
